I Wrote A Song

November 29, 2012

I know, I haven't posted here in a while, not because I've been busy or had a reason not to, but simply because--
I have nothing to blog about. Period. Well, that's the most useless statement ever and this will probably 
be the most useless post ever (and the most open), but I will try to make it up to you guys. *Sigh* Here it goes:
When I come home from school, I directly go up to my room and play the guitar, and at the end of the day I lay it down 
on the bed before I sleep. I don't know exactly why I've been fond of it lately, probably because learning something 
new and doing a different daily routine is strange to me. But it's such a fun instrument to learn and play all the time 
I can't help myself from holding it at least once a day. I'm not here to talk about Thanksgiving, or "The holidays" 
or Winter or Fall because to be honest, nothing much is going on around here because we don't have those traditions, 
or seasons pretty much. So instead, I wrote a song about my grandfather who passed since All Saints' Day was this 
month. Yes, I know it's pretty late. Yes, I also made chords because I liked my guitar. 
"Seventh Cemetery Tree"

You would call me your sunshine,
and put a smile on my face
You would bring me to the backyard,
the whole afternoon we play

As we watch your old movies,
You watch the joy in my eyes
But those days are now memories,
I was never used to goodbyes

Because every time I try to remember,
It usually comes with flashes and pictures
I didn't know how much you really meant to me
So every year, I go 
to the seventh cemetery tree

When the family plays poker,
with little plastic chips and cards,
And I would lose to my brother,
but you would give me some of yours

I would use your typewriter,
from the morning till dawn
I loved the sound of your laughter
and pride when you see what I've drawn

Cause every time I try to remember,
It usually comes with flashes and pictures
I didn't know how much you really meant to me
So every year, I go 
to the seventh cemetery tree


...Yeah I just thought that I'd like to share this with you guys. The verses come from the little tid bits memories I
remember from my childhood when my family and him used to live near each other. I'd just like to clarify that not
all bloggers are perfect and come up with brilliant works of art for all you to enjoy. It's basically our lives and what
we do in this world to entertain ourselves. We blog. And more and more people join in which makes us one, 
happy community that (hopefully?) respects and enjoys each other's company. That's all :) Have a happy week
end everyone! (Lotsa schoolwork to catch up on now bye and hopefully get to hear from you more)
